SAVE THE DATE: Seattle Japanese Garden “Garden Party”

Thursday July 12th | 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

The Japanese Garden is designed to awaken all five senses. 

Savor premium sake, craft wines, and a mouthwatering spread of traditional Japanese summer cuisine…
Be transported by the ethereal sound of harp and bamboo flute as it floats across the pond…
Glimpse dancers in kimono on the gravel paths, gliding alongside regal pines and moss-covered hills…
Feel a gentle wind, and catch the scent of a nearby flowering branch as you stroll through the haiku art walk…

Described as the “Best Kept Secret in Seattle,” this is one summer evening event you won’t want to miss.


UWAAJ 2018 UW Converge Tokyo & General Meeting

Saturday, November 17, 2018 | Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan, Tokyo

This event is a gathering of UW Alumni from the Asia/Pacific region, with senior representation as well from our UW Home Campus.  This follows regional alumni gatherings in recent years – beginning in Shanghai in November 2015, followed by events in Bangkok and Beijing in 2016 and 2017.

From Home Campus, we will be joined by several UW Deans and Faculty members – as well as by Ms. Sally Jewell, Distinguished Fellow at the UW’s College of the Environment.  Ms. Jewell also served as the 51st Secretary of the Interior of the United States (2013-2017) – and is herself a UW Alumna – attending on behalf of President Cauce, who is unable to attend this November. 

The Innovation Summit will take place at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan (FCCJ), followed by a Reception in the evening , the equivalent to our annual General Meeting (reunion) to which all participants are warmly encouraged to attend as well.
